[dig029] DraCo - Apocrypha
Space and time... Faith and chance... These are the forces of the Universe. From the darkest depths of sonic empire comes distinctive call of electronica to all of you eager to chill, to laugh and to be intimidated from time to time. The universe stands in front of you on the floor, in the air, in the mysterious bodies of your dancers, in your mind. From this voyage no one returns poor or weary.
Personal note: "Inspiration for this album (one way or the other) was found in works of Aphex Twin, Orbital, The Orb, FSOL, Fingathing, Ganga Giri, Shpongle, Chi A.D., Solar Quest, Clint Mansell and Beaumont Hannant. The machine shall never cease to function. Keep the solar wind behind your back." [DraCo]
Human Intro - together with Kexie a powerful and melancholic intro track was assembled, but with a message. Broaden your horizons.
Terok Nor - previously released at Groovecaffe label as a EP's headliner and after that used for a soundtrack of a certian TV trailer is a combination of styles, weird atmospheres and nice melodies. Has a wicked vokal play in the background.
Soulcatchers Relic - ethnic ambience in full effect... gentle female vocals with fat and dirty ethnic beats and a didgeridoo play giving an awesome bassline. Synths are there just to wide the experiece and to give a special twist.
Avalon - mythical island, mythical track... used also in a certain TV trailer (for few seconds only), also previously released on Groovecaffe label. Sometimes questions are more powerful than answers. Anthemic.
Superautodrome - a tribute (only by name) to a beautiful Scoopex 40K intro back on Amiga demo scene. Dirty beats, dirty atmosphere, experimental-ish vocals and bassline growling through the track. Horror-esque but intriguing.
Athanatic (DraCo's Odeon Remix) - the original isn't so dark.. the original doesn't have atmosphere so gothic, the original doesn't have that kind of experimental beat and is vocal free... But the original is still original, this is just a tribute to a great track.
Satir - kind of oldschool... a mixture of ambience and acid. Not to fast or to slow. With a catchy bassline including weird but easy to get used to percussions.
Sacher Nebula - orchestral wonder with female vocals to give a special spice. Bleepeedy-blop-blop bassline with breakbeat and melody that can melt anything. Space adventure into unknown, soundtrack for any day... We know it, you must hear it to believe it. Takes you up high and keeps you there.
Human Outro - originally created for performance at UWOG 4 festival held in Pula (Croatia) in 2006. But the lack of inspiration was too big back in the day. After 2 years the track was finished for a sole purpose of being the outro track.
Terok Nor (Deimos '94 Remix) - bonus track is smart retro remix in the manner of old Guru Josh works. All the elements are there from the original, but re-assembled and put together in a different style, more for the floor with a 4x4 beat.
